Carrie Fisher

Damn Right I Wanna Be

In the New 'Star Wars'

EXCLUSIVE

110612_fisher_launch
The upcoming Disney-owned "Star Wars" movie will star a much older Princess Leia ... at least if Carrie Fisher gets her way -- because the actress tells TMZ, she'd love to star in the next installment.

Carrie was at LAX yesterday when we asked if she'd accept a role in "Episode 7" -- currently in development at Disney -- and she said, "Yes. Sure. Wouldn't you?"

It would make sense too -- because "Episode 7" would follow "Return of the Jedi" in the Stars Wars timeline, meaning Leia could conceivably be a lot older in the new movie.

Carrie also said Disney low-balled George Lucas with its $4.05 billion deal -- saying he should've gotten about $500 million more.

carrie fisher would do/be in ANYTHING!
she's sad,
she's crazy, just listen to her ramble on, even without being drugged up.
Lucas got more than it was worth, he COULDN'T make anymore money, even die-hard nerd fans wouldn't buy it anymore from him. Disney will cash out $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

She died young in ROTJ. How would Leia still be alive in a sequal?

Cute T-shirt you have on Carrie, I'd expect to see that on a 12 year old. It isn't making you any younger. It also isn't making you any more sane.

Would be cool to see her back running the republic as queen. Some diet and training and she will be a good looking older Leia.

Damn right she is more crazier than Roseanne Barr. Who does Carrie think she's going to play, Jabba the hut?

all about the money    

A cameo maybe but not star in the next Star Wars movie. Actually I think the window of opportunity has already passed for the original crew of SW. Not sure where they will take the movies unless they focus on Lia and Han's kids or jump even further a head. For new SW movies I would think Knights of the Old Republic would be fertile ground for a few movies leading up to the whole New Hope timeline. The whole Reven storyline would be good to turn into a couple movies.

She ought to reprise her role in "Blues Brothers". She was halfway hot in that!
